To many windows on the front door

+17
Answered
Our front door has 44 Windows about 3"x2" each. I don't like the idea of being able to see inside our home from there. What can I do to cover them? I have tried a curtain on the inside and have also painted them to look like "stained" glass. There's got to be a better way!

    There are block out rolls of a sort of contact paper for windows that is available at Home Depot.

    I saw a post once where the painted on the back of frosted contact paper (squiggly lines, flowers shapes, etc) and then covered the glass with it; a door just like you are indicating but it was interior....but it looked really neat. They have films not that just apply with water as well that you could try and if you don't like it or get bored of it; super easy to take off.

    Tint or frost some of the glass

  • Rustoleum actually makes a spray paint for this situation! Tape off what you do not want sprayed and spray paint (clean the glass really well first) It is Frosted spray paint and you can find it at Home Depot.

    I would take out some of the sections of glass and would replace them with timber.

    Rustoleum Frost Glass spray: see it here http://dreambookdesign.com/2011/05/how-to-frost-glass-or-a-window/ (if u get tired of it remove it with a razor blade) Or, measure each pane cut a piece of lace that size, dip the lace in a drippy mixture of cornstarch and water before pasting the lace unto the pane. This will allow you to cover some or all of the panes.... Good luck!

    I think there is some peel off frosted or designed like material that you might could use. Also, maybe some decorative panels or wooden panels? I'm not sure what else could be used other than what has been suggested. But I hope all of these suggestions here in this thread are of help to you. :)

    You could purchase 3x2 tiles and insert them.

    Thank you. I have thought about using the film as I have it on a couple of other windows . Just wasn't ready to cut 44 of them.

  • Penny Penny on Mar 01, 2016

    Interesting thought. Thank you.

  • Penny Penny on Mar 01, 2016
    But then I would have to do it on both sides. Something to think about though. Thank you.
